So, after battling the obtuse, completely useless ltp install
documentation and having to resort to reverse engineering a working
configuration using strace, I finally got this running, I think, on
an XFS filesystem:

/mnt/scratch/ltp$ sudo ./runltp -b /dev/pmem1 -B xfs -z /dev/vdc -Z xfs -q -p -s llistxattr -I 100
....
Summary:
passed 1
failed 0
skipped 0
warnings 0
tst_test.c:756: INFO: Timeout per run is 0h 05m 00s
llistxattr02.c:76: PASS: llistxattr() failed as expected: ERANGE
llistxattr02.c:76: PASS: llistxattr() failed as expected: ENOENT
llistxattr02.c:76: PASS: llistxattr() failed as expected: EFAULT
....

And it doesn't fail. strace output:

24833 lsetxattr("symlink", "security.ltptest", "test", 4, XATTR_CREATE) = 0
24833 llistxattr("symlink", 0x7ffe312356b0, 1) = -1 ERANGE (Numerical result out of range)
24833 llistxattr("", 0x7ffe312356a0, 20) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
24833 llistxattr(0xffffffffffffffff, 0x7ffe312356a0, 20) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address)

I'm assuming from your description that it is the first one of these
that fails for you as it is the "buffer too small" test case. So,
not as obvious as it first seems - ltp doesn't appear to be a
reliable reproducer of the problem, so we are going to need a custom
test to exercise it....

Cheers,

Dave.
